Christmas Mindful Self-Compassion Workshop
Sun 18 December 2016, 10:30 – 12:30 GMT
Christmas can be a stressful time for many of us, as this workshop is so close to the event we will focus on calming and soothing exercises to take care of ourselves and others at this time. There'll also be an extra seasonal treat :) Stop the madness for a moment and give yourself a real break.
Kind and compassionate practices to reflect on all month.
Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we're struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.
Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.
The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners :)
